, nancy. jan crawford has been covering the romney campaign. she is in boston tonight. jan? >> well, scott, governor romney just landed here about an hour ago after making campaign stops in that key state of ohio and in pennsylvania. he talked to reporters on the way back on the plane and he said he felt good about this campaign. they hadn't left anything in the locker room and that he thinks they're going to win. he said he just finished his victory speech. he's not written a concession speech. now, the mood inside the campaign tonight, scott, is one of cautious optimism, i'd say. but there is a little bit of nervousness and here's why: campaign sources that i'm talking with tonight say they are encouraged by the high numbers of republican turnout they're seeing in these swing states like ohio, florida, virginia. they believe that will outperform john mccain in 2008. that's the key to this election. they really had to run up the score in those areas. but here's where the nervousness comes in. they're also seeing some of the president's turnout in some of those democratic areas like in nor

roberts was there in boston again today with a recap, john? >> the governor put on a brave face. but he was experiencing bitter disappointment and a long, long road to get where he was. it does go to show that the were accurate in what they were hoying and always happens in every four years. they were looking attractive in closing days, they really weren't. the real question it. broadly divided as the country is and big issues facing us, is this a recipe for grid lock or will it spark dipartisan legislation. mitt romney said he would reach across the aisle and he asked those in charge next year to get something done. >> the nation as you know is at a criticical point we can't risk political bickers and partisanship. we have storeach across the aisle. we look to teachers and professors and county on you to teach and inspire our children with passion and discovery. >> the president pledged to meet with mitt romney to talk about the problems . if the republican party hopes to win back the white house it has work to do. governor romney lost among women and lost the hispanic vote. president
's in boston. j. mart, if you can hear me amid the hoopla here at the newseum. you're a student at virginia, you've been e-mailing me all night about problems you're detecting in virginia. tell us the problems you see and why and what it means. >> the margins in conservative -- [inaudible] in the suburbs around richmond, chesterfield county is the biggest one, comparable to '08. in 2008 john mccain lost the commonwealth of virginia by seven points. the bottom line, barack obama can do a little bit worse across virginia and still win that state. if he wins the state, there's no path to the presidency for mitt romney. we'll get the western suburbs, look at the outer suburbs of northern virginia, the margins are comparable or a little bit better for romney than they were for mccain four years ago. so unless something big happens in the two big jurisdictions still being counted, virginia beach and fairfax up by washington, d.c., i think that the commonwealth of virginia is going to stay blue and give president obama a second term. >> republicans knew that there was trouble there, or has this al
to boston to watch the returns in a speech to supporters. we have been speaking to reporters the last couple of days here at c-span, finding out what they think is going to happen on election night. >> we're going to see a pretty consistent pattern across the country. it will start in virginia where the polls closed at 7:00 p.m. burgeon as a contested battleground state. a relatively tight race. the bottom line, it will be a close race. they're good at counting votes and we have a pretty good senate race. if we know that virginia is leaning one way or another, or toward one of the senate candidate, we're going to have a pretty good idea of what the rest of the night is good to look for. keep an eye on virginia. that is an early bellwether, canary in the coal mine for what is coming the rest of the night. in a macro sense what i am looking at is -- what we will see on november 6 is the first normal data point we have seen in eight years. we have not seen what a normal life threat looks like since george of the bush was running for reelection. we will watch how many non-white voter turnout. is
taken in 23 boston -- foster children in addition to our -- >> under what circumstances would you allow a woman to have an abortion? >> the same as the catholic church. it is that i stand to protect life from conception until natural death except in cases of the light of the mother. >> so if somebody is a victim of rape, abortion should still not be allowed? >> i stand for the protection and sanctity of human life from conception until natural death. >> abortion is a tragedy. i will do everything possible so that women can avoid that difficult choice. i will work for a real meaningful maternity leave. i will have equal pay for equal work. this is a woman's issue between herself and her god and family. i would bring up -- one bill michele bachmann put into congress' call the protect like bill. i would have voted for that -- she would not. that would restrict any federal funding for any abortions and restricted 100%. michele bachmann did not vote for that. i would have voted for it. >> let me say -- it is important to clarify this. i do not support taxpayer funding of abortions. obamacare

. and nbc has the president up by 6 points. got all that? joining us now from boston, david. he directs polling. >> he want to run it down from your point of view. you have canvassed the whole country, know what's going on. ohio, how do you see it? >> i see it really close. if you look at the last four polls, it's one point. 1 through 8 the poll was average four to five points. what we look at is the head-to-head number. the last three consecutive polls, excluding the two you mentioned were at 48. that's a sign of vulnerability. obviously you have seven candidates on the ballot. i think those polls that had the plus four, plus five overstated obama's support because they overcounting a strong democratic county, and they had a party differential in those polls of democrats with an 8 point advantage party affiliation. >> so you see romney momentum in ohio? >> i see romney strong enough to be within a point. and that's exactly where the last four polls showed him. >> so the governor has a very, very -- he has a very good chance in ohio. how about florida? >> i don't think so. as we talked

, and everybody -- not only at this network, at nbc, abc, cbs, in boston, in austin, all talking about president kerry. that was two hours before the polls closed. >> bob shrum. >> everybody knew that john kerry had won the race. everybody. let me repeat. everybody. two hours before. and then we all remembered what happened in new hampshire when everybody was dancing on hillary clinton's grave. >> oh, my god. >> the day of the new hampshire primary. >> let's look at primary crowds. >> mika and i, we're at a nashua gym and saw hillary up there speaking. >> they were, like, bringing people in from out of state. >> everybody came in from massachusetts. and i said, you know, she deserves a better ending than this. and yet, you never know until americans go into the voting booth and vote. >> well, i recall in new hampshire in february of 2008 being in the lobby of the holiday inn with you and telling you that i had just bumped into lou dellesandrou who was running hillary's campaign. >> and everybody laughed. >> everybody did laugh. that gets to the ultimate magic and mystery that is election day. th
new york. i can criticize new york. somebody from boston wants to come down to my city, they're going to have a problem. so the feels was mitt romney was never one of them. bobby jindal has always been. he was elected -- he was really embraced by the tea party ways. and you know, so he's -- he's really -- appeals to the entire electorate at this point just in terms of where he's come from. the positions he's held. he's not big on state-based exchanges. he's already rejected those. scott walker is probably going to come out against them on friday. >> john: i think you're right. >> john casey is make his own decision tomorrow as well. he's very well respected. going to be very hard for the conservative movement to say he's far too moderate. >> john: zeke miller, it is a pleasure to have you here. we love you in new york, boston. you're always welcome. a few yankee fans may not like you but we mets fans treasure our boston fans. follow you at zeke j miller on the "buzzfeed." thanks for coming in. >> thanks for ha
in boston they reached their agreement on their teachers' union contract, and they have been fighting over for the past two years, and their contract that they just agreed to in boston is very similar to what is on the table in chicago. but boston has a no-strike clause. and even though they've been fighting over it for two years, they got a mediator from washington, d.c. to come in and work with these folks, work with both sides. they settled this thing. at the end of the day, no kids lost time, you know, out of the classroom. we're at the point now where -- and i believe -- that we need to evaluate these educational proposals based on one simple yardstick: will this help a child learn? and if the answer is yes, we should be for it. if the answer is no, we should be against it. so what will it take to change the dynamic? well, you know, there are a couple of things here. the solutions lie in, of course, accountability and quality teachers and autonomy. but, you know, one of the solutions also is parent choice. you know, i see as i go around the country that the more participants step up -
in their underwear and fornicating in the stairwell. >> sounds like fun to me. >> stephanie: boston was fun. 34 minutes past the hour. >> the wilbur theatre stairwell will never be the same. >> stephanie: yikes. mark in [ laughter ] >> stephanie: it is "the stephanie miller show." welcome to it. 34 minutes after the hour. this is -- romney ad on facebook. someone said so what they're saying is batman couldn't stop all of the crime in gotham so i'm voting for two-face? [ applause ] wow, with all of the endorsements, the economists endorsing barack obama. that's kind of huge. huge! >> stephanie: not all endorsements are created equal. the london based the economics -- endorsement. they've endorsed ronald reagan, margaret thatcher and bill clinton in the past. given their state of unflinching independence as well as the troubled state of the economy in the last four years their endorsement for obama not a forgone conclusion. >> i have, too said the economy is based in zimbabwe. >> stephanie: along with the salt lake
barefoot. >> wow, exactly how she spent most of the last seven months running barefoot from boston to southern california. think about that. from boston to southern cali. and it was all to raise money and awareness for the soles4souls charity which gives shoes to kids who don't have them. >> you have to kind of look around a little bit to see what you can do to help. you don't necessarily need to run across the country to get shoes on kids' feet. >> wow, she raised $10,000 along the way. received donations at 8,500 pairs of shoes. heim says it's easy to help. $1 equals a pair of shoes for someone who needs them. >> her feet actually look pretty good. >> thought they would be bloodied, battered. the guy in the wheelchair there, that is actually her boyfriend who finished the race with her. which is amazing. for both of them. great to see that. >> i have a lot of close friends that are runners, covered a couple marathons. actually some people look to run bare feet. there are theories out there it is better for your feet to run barefoot than to run with shoes on. >> whoo. >> look out
correspondent is at governor romney's headquarters in boston. let's begin with you. >> they're excited, optimistic anxious and awaiting the result. it's an open question as to one might know until 1:00 a.m. or future days. the romney campaign is watching closely florida, virginia and ohio. there are very few victory strategies contemplated by boston, the romney campaign, that don't include the buckeye state and they're concerned about signs of high turn-out in the northern part of ohio where the detroit auto bail-out was a big mallet which the president pounded mr. romney. on the southern border of ohio along kentucky, particularly along cincinnati, hamilton county, big optimism and turn-out for the republican campaign. virginia, florida, ohio romney believes so go though so goes the country. romney has only written one speech, a victory speech. >> carl cameron. let's get straight to the president's camp in chicago and ed henry. >> shep, the president has been getting very wistful. it started in iowa what started the obama movement. he said today he was crying partly because it was col
manhattan, greenwich, where people have just accumulated -- boston, wherever, just remarkable wealth, vast sums of wealth. the land and gentry. and you sit there and go, you know what? these people that live in these mansions and have private jets and live an extraordinary life like few americans lived 30 years ago, they can probably deal with a 20% tax rate on capital gains instead of 15%. i don't think that's going to wreck the economy. and i think there are a lot of republicans that are saying what a few of us were saying after the election. bill kristol said it. so tell me again, why are we fighting and risking our majorities, protecting billionaires that are hedge fund guys who are paying 14% tax rates? >> walk two blocks from this street, fifth avenue between this building and 57th street, and the storefronts on fifth avenue. anybody who can go into those storefronts and purchase things in those storefronts are not going to be damaged by these tax reforms that we've been talking about. they're not going to be damaged. >> by the way, the storefronts aren't going to be damaged by raisi
staff certainly said one thing but in boston at the romney headquarters my god was sensing a lot of confidence coming out of that building. unlike mr. romney and did have a concession speech prepared for this event as we thought through what the conversation would be like depending on the scenario but i had a few questions on election night. the first was remembering exactly what it felt like in 2004, where we had a dozen constitutional amendments passed all across the country. you had karl rove celebrated as the architect hewitt just built a new kind of republican electoral majority that would have legs in traction for a decade or two. you had a president who was reelected, not because of that within the toolkit was the use of the wedge issue, gay, gays and lgbt couples across the country. the dark and sort of fetal position and what i sensed on election night this year is how proud i am about our resilience. we picked ourselves up and we decided to fight and decided to start talking to republicans. we decided to demand more from our great democratic front. a lot of movements co
hospitalized in boston. the 83-year-old was rushed from his prison cell to a hospital yesterday after complaining of chest pains. bulger, the man who inspired jack nicholson's character in "the departed" is awaiting trial for his role in 19 murders. >>> that is zach potter. inspiring a nation by climbing to the top of chicago's 103-story willis tower. zach lost his leg in a motorcycle accident three years ago. doctors out fitted the 31-year-old with the world's first neurocontrolled bionic leg. he used it to scale the former sears tower in just over 53 minutes. that's incredible. >>> coming up, the economy is a top issue in this election. and president obama has consistently trailed mitt romney on that issue. so what does that mean for tomorrow's election? one of the nation's top economists, larry summers, is going to join us next. harge of . how they'll live tomorrow. for more than 116 years, ameriprise financial has worked for their clients' futures. helping millions of americans retire on their terms. when they want. where they want. doing what they want. ameriprise. the strength o
romney will be in florida, and ohio and boston to watch the election . he's voting for himself . the president of the united states was in ohio, wisconsin and virginia and today in wisconsin and ohio. i tell you one thing. these guys are sprinting and blitzing to the finish. >> if you look at the crowds, the president of the united states sounds like he's losing his voice by the end of the day. and mitt romney in buckscounty, pennsylvania had 30,000. and it said it rivaled george bush's appearance back in 2004 and polls in pennsylvania look like mr. mitt romney regained the momentum that was stalled with sandy and could do well. >> gretchen: one of the things people have say . is it important to go negative or stay positive. you have done your negative advertising and more important to speak about america in general and the great nation that we are and vote patriotism or get the jabs. the president got in one word that republicans have latched on to right now. they played -- we'll play the sound bite and then mitt romney will respond. the word is "revenge". >> at the time the r
from his hometown of chicago. meanwhile, governor romney will be monitoring results from boston. word just in on the associated press that he and his wife have just cast their ballots in belmont, mass. some economic news on this election day. real estate data provider breeding this morning that a measure of u.s. prices rose 5% in september compared to one year ago. it is the largest year-over-year increase recorded since july to thousand six. they also said prices declined 0.3% in september from august, the first drop after six straight increases but it indicates the end of the summer buying. freddie mac posted an increase for the july-september quarter and requested no additional federal aid. it was their second straight profitable quarter. compared to a loss of $6 billion for the same quarter of 2011. big to be the gain to an increase in home prices and a decline in mortgage delinquencies. both are signs of a modest housing recovery. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio.

that there will be a caucus with the democrats. we see this headline in "the boston globe." what advice did you have for this fellow independent? guest: we have spoken a couple of times recently. essentially what he asked me about it is what is a like to function within the democratic caucus. the democratic leadership have treated me with fairness. they have not discriminated against me. i am an independent. senator reid has been responsive to the needs of vermont. i'm glad he is joining the caucus. host: does it give the independent voice any more sway? guest: i think it does. he won as an independent. host: environment, public works are among the committee's senators sanders sits on. he was the mayor of burlington. gloria from texas. caller: good morning. can used to that chart that you showed earlier about what they would be paying in taxes? host: we will get the ready for you. did it concern you? caller: everybody is talking out devastating it will be to go over the cliff. people making under $20,000, $7.50 a week. there is only $270 a week. i didn't think the country will be devastated if those
here. >> hike in the stephen flynn from northeastern university in boston. on the issue of new normal, i wonder picking up on david's point about the price to post-9/11, is the sort of coming to grips with the hubris we could prevent bad things from happening, this huge investment in the post-secular world arabic ere we could ideally stop risk. actually coping with that is what we really need to increase and maybe just bring it very close to home. we just had this bashing mother nature in the area, priced at around $60 billion for a risk above the basic things like when you have tunnels that are only seven feet above water. it fills up the hole and you end up with 86 million gallons of oil in the tunnel and that's not hard to predict. putting safeguards in place in recovering this may be one element of this. basically the issue is that we focus too much on trying to prevent risk instead of managing it better? >> steve tried to argue for solace, which is an interesting concept. yes, back here. >> richard downey from the center for hemispheric u.s. david, you mentioned in the election t
on this gragraduate degree, he is workig at a domestic violence shelter in boston. harvard awarded him the thomas upton scholarship. pierre recently wrote an article about growing up as undocumented immigrant and here what is he said. "i am not a criminal, a monito , a predator, or swung had sits at someone doing nothing meaningful. i care for this country, as well as its sorrows and joys. i am not asking that our government maintain an open-door policy for immigrants. i am simply asking that it give an opportunity to those of us who have proven ourselves." well, pierre is right. america needs young people just like him who love their country and are dedicated to caring for our society's most vulnerable. so what do the american people think about the idea of the dream act? a bloomberg poll found that 64% of likely voters, almost two out of three, including 66% of independents support the policy compared to only 30% who oppose it. by a margin of 2-1 the american people know this is the right thing to do. now we need to pass a comprehensive immigration reform. on our side the negotiating effort wil

: the front page of the "boston globe" shows the impact of the storm, millions reeling. the "hartford courant" has this headline. go ahead, neil levesque. guest: it affected new hampshire as well. our fourth largest power outage. going to the caller's point -- new hampshire, we do have the opportunity to be around these candidates, particularly during the primary. i will say this -- no matter what party they are from you will find that candidates are very patriotic people. they really want to do the best they can for our country, and they are wonderful, not only with what they do in the public but also with their families. it is something voters do not get to see. it is quite sad, because these people are really tremendous, they worked very hard. more than half of everyone who put their name on a ballot loses. it takes great courage to think you can do this and try to read these candidates put their names on the ballot and run and run very well. the candidates for president -- governor romney has been running for years now. probably three years nonstop. the president is certainly tireless as

to boston had their service interrupted. dozens and dozens of new jersey transit locomotives and rail cars were damaged by flooding. and so today i'm proud to announce that we expedited $25 million in transportation funding to help ease that situation. but some commuters into new york, for example, from my home state of new jersey are still suffering four-hour commutes with rail service only about half of what it normally is, largely because there's still not enough power for all the trains. in the meantime, new jersey has added subsidized ferry service to make up the difference with the department of transportation providing over 300 -- the federal department of transportation providing over 300 buses to help serve those new ferry lines, including one out of liberty state park. here's another photograph of the extraordinary power that sandy's surge lifted boats on to the rail bridge along the north jersey coastline. amazingly, through the hard work of new jersey transit workers, this devastated rail line might be able to resume limited service by the end of this week. but this line, like
